[image]San Cristobal Volcano - Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
The smoke plume from the San Cristobal volcano in Nicaragua is visible as much as 200 kilometers away from its source in this SeaWiFS image. Smoke also appears to be coming from the vicinity of the Masaya volcano complex further to the south. Sensor: OrbView-2/SeaWiFS. Data Start Date: 2/25/00.

[image]Volcano San Cristobal - Provided by the SeaWiFS Project, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center, and ORBIMAGE
There appears to be a lot of haze blowing southward from Central America in this SeaWiFS image. The plume near the right side of the image appears to originate at the top of the volcano, San Cristobal, in Nicaragua. Sensor: OrbView-2/SeaWiFS. Data Start Date: 11/30/99.

[image]San Cristobal Volcano - Image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, NASA GSFC
On December 16, 2002, the San Cristobal volcano in Nicaragua spewed out a plume of smoke and ash visible from space. The gray plume of smoke can be seen in this image captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite. San Cristobal is an active stratovolcano in the San Cristobal complex on the west coast of Nicaragua. The volcano periodically spits out ash and smoke over the Central American jungles...

[image]Separation - NASA
As the shuttle and the space station began their post-undocking relative separation, Expedition 23 flight engineer Soichi Noguchi photographed the underside of the shuttle over the south end of Isla de Providencia, about 150 miles off the coast of Nicaragua. Undocking of the two spacecraft occurred on April 17, 2010, ending the shuttle's 10-day stay. The visit included three spacewalks and delivery of more than seven tons of equipment and supplies to the station...

[image]The Moon’s Shadow - Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
Solar eclipses occur when the Moon passes between the Earth and Sun so that the Moon’s shadow falls on the Earth. Although solar eclipses are rarely seen at any given location on Earth, they can be observed somewhere on the Earth’s surface at least twice and as often as five times per year. Eclipses can be observed by most Earth-orbiting satellites that have wide fields of view. Therefore, scientists working with data sets derived from these satellite sensors should be aware of the reduced s...

Category 5 hurricanes are rare. Rarer still is the storm that makes landfall as a Category 5 storm -- most weaken before hitting land. Yet, exactly two weeks after Hurricane Dean struck the Yucatan Peninsula as a Category 5 storm (the first Atlantic storm of that size to come ashore since Hurricane Andrew in 1992), Hurricane Felix roared ashore at Category 5 strength. Felix came ashore over northeastern Nicaragua on September 4, 2007, with sustained winds of 260 kilometers per hour (160 miles pe...

Concepción Volcano is one of the tallest and most active of Nicaragua's volcanoes. The 1,610-meter (5,280-foot), cone-shaped volcano is the northern half of dumbbell-shaped Isla de Ometepe. Concepción is joined by a narrow isthmus to the dormant Maderas Volcano, which makes up the southern half of the island.

[image]Nicaragua's San Cristobal Erupts: Natural Hazards - NASA -- NASA Image Of The Day
A small plume of steam and possibly ash was wafting westward from the San Cristobal Volcano in northwestern Nicaragua (bottom right quadrant) on December 16, 2002. At the time this modis.gsfc.nasa.gov Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image was acquired by the terra.nasa.gov/ Terra satellite, no detectable heat signature was present at the volcano, but a few fires were detected and are marked with red outlines...

[image]The Mosquito Coast: Image of the Day - NASA -- NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and U.S./Japan asterweb.jpl.nasa.gov/ ASTER Science Team
Around 15 degrees North, a rounded point of land juts out into the Caribbean Sea from the Central American isthmus. This low-lying, wet area is called the Mosquito Coast, a corruption of the tribal name of some of the area's native people, the Miskito. The area includes parts of Honduras (north) and Nicaragua (south). Between the two countries flows the Coco River, which empties into the Caribbean at Cape Gracias a Dios...

[image]Pollution from Fires in Central America: Image of the Day - NASA -- Image courtesy the NCAR and University of Toronto www.eos.ucar.edu/mopitt/ MOPITT Teams
The widespread and intense biomass burning ocurring on the Yucatan Peninsula and other parts of Central America is producing high concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO) in the lower atmosphere, as shown in this image of observations by the Measurements of Pollution in The Troposphere (MOPITT) instrument aboard NASA's terra.nasa.gov Terra satellite. This false-color image shows the mixing ratios of CO at an altitude of about 3 km (700 hPa) averaged from April 25 to May 1, 2003...
